Keanu Reeves has reportedly admitted he doesn't know what's going on with Cowboy Bebop.

The Matrix star is expected to play the lead role in the big-screen adaptation of the Japanese anime series, but is reported to have said things are up in the air right now.

"I haven't heard anything back - they turned in the script and it was very expensive, it would cost, like, half a billion dollars to make that script, so I don't know where it's at right now," he told

He is keeping his fingers crossed for samurai film, 47 Ronin, though, to be directed by Carl Rinsch.

"We are hopefully going to make 47 Ronin," he added.

"I think it's a creeping express train, which means that they've done pre-production, we're still working on the script, they're done pre-visualisation, and they're doing location scouting. It's ready to go. It's a bullet train in waiting."

Keanu, who next appears in rom-com Henry's Crime, has been filming Generation Um.

"Two days in and it's going great," he revealed.

"It takes place over 24 hours. You follow this character named John. It's basically the relationship between him and two call girls. He's the driver and he ends up stealing a video camera and hanging with them in an apartment. It's kind of about the interpersonal dynamics of this family."
